Subject: d2 & d3 have gone missing
seems like some of these shows got lost in the move.
Reviewer: brendanmcauley - - May 6, 2005
Subject: great set list
This show is a great set list and from the reveiwers who preceed me and those who attended this show I am sure you see/hear something I do not. Ths recording is lousey and faint and overall non listenable in my book.

The show is great on paper and the reveiwers sure make it sound good, but it is not, unfortunately.

Thanks again to all who contribute and support this site; it's great. I hate to be negative but a review needs to be honest and honesty is that this show has lousy sound quality. If you like new years runs check out 1980 there is a kind vErsion of NYE from that year as qwell as NYE from THIS 1981 run but this show is not recommended.

Subject: Digirot Warning
Watch out for the significant amount of digirot during the Scarlet Begonias. Most of it occurs during the first minute and then the minute following the last verse.

Great show, no doubt.

Subject: Great show
the whole show is really good but the iko - playin terrapin other one is really hot - on my d5 you can here the cool reverb of the arena you miss in a board as well as the baloons popping all around - the dark star has grown on me alot+

Subject: Meantime , a day at the dentist !
I went to all of these and I thought the first two were the best, except for Scarlet Begonias. Maybe that's an over statement; but besides the only Eleven jam in the key of E instead of B I ever saw ! It's a rare occurrance for Bob Weir to give the Improvisation a name "Meantime , a day at the dentist !", and then proceed into a jam that sounded like getting one's teeth drilled, a fate, thank God I only suffered once !
